God has recently revealed to my heart that I often care too much about what people think.. And Leon has mentioned millions of times about how I need to just let what people "say to me" and "about me" go in one ear and out the other. Why is this so hard for me to let go? Am I still a slave to people? I have no desire to be and yet every time someone speaks an opinion of me I receive it with both arms, dwell on it, over think about it and often cry.
Why is it so hard for me to shut my mind up and remind myself who I really am in Christ?! A warrior, a daughter, a Princess? One who's worth is far above rubies? Why is it so hard sometimes to believe that about myself? Possibly because I'm still so focused on my works and not focused of what He did to give me His identity?
Honestly, how dare I think badly of myself when Heaven went bankrupt to bring me back into the presence of my Father.
Todd White (My Spiritual hero!) Speaks so amazingly and beautifully about how we need to really know our identity in Christ. He talks often about how he is not out of his mind but out of the mind of everyone else because He really only cares about what Jesus thinks of Him. I so long to be out of the mind of everyone. To be free from that.
I'm so done with the lies of the enemy. Telling me I'm not good enough, that I'm an orphan and that I'm not loved or qualified to do the impossible. I'm so done with the enemy convincing me that I'm not being heard, seen, and pursued. When the truth is My Father does see me, He knows me, He hears me and above all He loves me with a love that even I can't describe. I want to know who I am in Christ and above that I want to live who I am in Christ! I don't just want to know but I want to walk with that identity following me everywhere I go so that when people see me they will want what I have. The Most amazing King.
If you have been struggling with identity like I have and you need a reminder of who you really are. I deeply encourage you to get lost into this song and claim your identity in Christ. It's time to take back what the enemy has stolen. :)We are fearless.
We are whole.
We are His Own.
We are no longer blind.
He set us free.
We are not orphans.
We are all that He says we are! =D
